agnès b V700 watch

I decided on a simple but elegant looking watch today from a range I've featured before.

Today's watch is by the French agnès b brand (the all-small letters layout is used in the logo). The agnès b label began in France in 1973 and they opened their first shop two years later in Paris, with there now being over 100 stores worldwide.

The agnès b label watches are from a collaboration with Seiko which has been going since 1989 and continues to this day. Many different designs have been produced, and follow the timeless design ethic of the agnès b label.

This model I based around the Seiko V700 quartz movement, and is of a 2 hand dial design. The special design feature of this model is that the hands are shaped such that the hour hand reads agnès, and there is a b at the end of the minutes hand (such that at 9:15 reading across the dial shows the complete name).

The case is a thin silver design (in base metal) with a tonneau shape, and there is a silver metal strap (with part number E017A8-E). The full model number is V700-5100, and is was made in 1994 or 2004.
